1 Arlington Soccer Association PLAYING RULES 7 th and 8 th Grade GROUPS Effective Fall 2013 Season

2 ASA PLAYING RULES 7 TH & 8 th GRADE GROUPS The following rules of play and additional instructions will apply to all games and scrimmages for the Arlington Soccer Association s (ASA) Recreational Soccer League. The Laws of the Game as authorized by the International Federation of Association Football (F.I.F.A.) and the United States Soccer Federation (U.S.S.F.) shall apply in all cases except as follows: LAW 1 FIELD OF PLAY The field of play is rectangular, its length being no more than 120 yards or less than 100 yards and its width not more than 75 yards or less than 55 yards. The length in all cases shall exceed the width. Field sizes may vary. Goals are set in place at the center of each end line. The field of play is divided into two halves by a halfway line. The center mark is indicated at the midpoint of the halfway line. A circle with a radius of ten (10) yards is marked around it. A Goal Area is marked six (6) yards from each goal post and six (6) yards into the field of play, joined by a line drawn parallel with the goal line. A Penalty Area is marked eighteen (18) yards from each goal post and eighteen (18) yards into the field of play, joined by a line drawn parallel with the goal line. The area bounded by these lines and the goal line is the penalty area. A penalty mark is made twelve (12) yards out from the midpoint between the goalposts. An arc of a circle with a radius of ten (10) yards from each penalty mark is drawn outside the penalty area. LAW 2 THE BALL The 7 th and 8 th Grade groups use a Size 5 ball. LAW 3 NUMBER OF PLAYERS For games, each team will have eleven (11) players on the field, one (1) which must be designated as a goalkeeper. A minimum of seven (7) players on the field to start, or play, the game. A team with fewer than seven (7) players will not be allowed to begin, or continue to play, the game; unless approved by the game referee. Unlimited substitutions are allowed at the following times, with permission of the referee: At the halftime or quarter breaks After a goal is scored When the ball crosses the end line On possession throw-ins. If the team in possession of the throw-in elects to substitute, then both teams may make unlimited substitutions. When a player is injured. If the referee stops the game for an injured player, both teams may make substitutions. The player going out must be completely off the field before a new player can enter.

3 LAW 4 PLAYERS EQUIPMENT Shin guards are mandatory for all players. Shinguards must be covered by the sock; or be built into the sock. Players of teams participating in Association competition are required to wear the matching shirt of the Club the team represents. Individual team colors are not acceptable. Proper soccer shoes in conformity with the official lawful standard are the only acceptable soccer shoes. Sneakers may be worn, but no hard-soled street shoes are permitted. The home team according to the schedule must change its uniform colors if they conflict with the away team colors. Pinnies may be used by the home team if needed to resolve a jersey color conflict. LAW 5 REFEREES All games are officiated by a single referee, assigned by the ASA. If the assigned referee fails to appear within ten minutes after scheduled game time, the teams may appoint a substitute referee by mutual agreement. Such appointment of a substitute referee shall be binding for the game. Should the assigned referee appear after a substitute has been assigned, the teams may allow the referee to officiate the game. All Association coaches, players and adult spectators must recognize the referee as the sole authority over the game. As specified under the F.I.F.A. Laws, maintaining respect for the game leader is of vital importance to successful youth soccer. Behavior which falls below this standard of respect and interferes with the game leader s ability to officiate will not be tolerated. Any incidents will be subject to Association Board review and discipline. ASA Referees are instructed to stop the game if, in the opinion of the referee, the referee feels a possible injury to a player has occurred. The player involved does not have to fall down or appear injured for the referee to stop the game. If the referee feels an injury to a player may have occurred, the referee will stop the game and call on the team coach to assist the injured player. If the referee stops the game and calls the coach on to the field, the coach is expected to speak with, and carefully observe, the player identified or suspected to have sustained any type of injury. The coach should focus his attention only to the injured player. It is recommended that the coach be very careful in allowing the player further plays as injury symptoms are often delayed. If the referee stops the game due to a player being injured, that player must leave the field of play. At this time, substitutions are allowed by both teams. The injured player, after leaving the field, may return at the next allowable substitution opportunity; or if allowed to return to the field by the referee. The exception to the above rule is if the referee stops the game for an injured goalkeeper. After evaluating an injured goalkeeper, the coach may elect to keep the goalkeeper in the game and is not required to make a substitution. In all injury cases, coaches are recommended to err on the side of caution, and take a player off the field if an injury is suspected. LAW 6 ASSISTANT REFEREES Each coach (at the request of the referee) will designate one person to act as Assistant Referee (AR). At all times, the referee may overrule the AR. The AR indicates only if a ball has completely crossed the sideline or endline and shows which team has possession.

4 LAW 7 DURATION OF GAME The match is divided into two (2) equal halves of thirty (30) minutes each. There shall be a half-time interval of five (5) minutes. Teams will switch ends of the field at half time. LAW 8 THE START OF PLAY The winner of the coin toss gets to choose the goal they wish to attack in the first half. The loser of the toss gets the kick-off. The game begins with the ball being played from the center spot. Opposing players must be at least ten (10) yards away. The player taking the initial kick cannot touch the ball again until another player has touched it. A kick-off must go forward with the initial kick. A player may score directly from a kick-off. LAW 9 BALL IN AND OUT OF PLAY The ball is out of play when it has completely crossed over the sideline or endline; or when the game has been stopped by the game leader. A ball going out of play over the side is restarted by a throw-in by the team not playing the ball out of bounds. FIFA rules governing the throw-in are in effect. A ball going out of play over the endline is played in either by a goal kick or a corner kick. LAW 10 METHOD OF SCORING The ball must pass completely across goal line between the goal posts and under the crossbar (or the height of the goal posts). LAW 11 OFFSIDE The FIFA offside rule is in effect. LAW 12 FOULS AND MISCONDUCT Confirm to FIFA rules LAW 13 FREE KICKS Conform to FIFA rules LAW 14 THE PENALTY KICK A penalty kick is awarded if there is a foul committed by the defending team inside their penalty area. The penalty kick is taken from a mark twelve (12) yards out from the endline, in the center of the goal. All players, other than the designated kicker, must be ten (10) yards away from and behind the ball. LAW 15 THE THROW IN A ball going out of play over the side is restarted by a throw-in by the team not playing the ball out of bounds. FIFA rules for throw-in are in effect.

5 LAW 16 THE GOAL KICK The defending team takes a goal kick when the attacking team touched the ball last before it went over the end line. The ball may be kicked from anywhere inside the goal area. Opponents must be outside the penalty area. The ball is not in play until it has completely left the penalty area. A goal may be scored directly from a goal kick. LAW 17 THE CORNER KICK The attacking team takes corner kicks when the defending team touched the ball last before it went over the end line. Corner kicks are taken from either corner of the field, one (1) yard from the spot where the endline and sideline meet. Opponents must be ten (10) yards away from the ball until it is kicked. A goal may be scored directly from a corner kick. ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS & ASA PHILOSOPHIES 7 TH and 8 th GRADE GROUPS TEAM ROSTER SIZE In the 7 th and 8 th Grade groups, the ASA recommends that teams are formed with 16 players. With eleven (11) players on the field, that would provide five (5) substitutes for each game. A player may only play in an ASA sanctioned league game if that player has been registered with the ASA and has been added to the team s official roster. RUNAWAY GAMES There is no mandatory adjustment required for games that become lopsided. However, it is recommended, in the spirit of the game, for the coach of the winning team to make some modifications to allow for a more even contest. The winning team may remove a player or two, remove the stronger players, or play with fewer players in attack to balance the game. TEAMS AND SPECTATOR SEATING The ASA recommends that each team, and their spectators, be separate from each other and respect the other team s area. The team area is defined as: on opposite sides of the field, within 8 yards of the midfield line; or on the same side of the field, but on opposing sides of the midfield line, and under no circumstances extending from midfield past the penalty area. All instructions from team coaches must be done from inside the team s area.

6 GOOD OF SOCCER Opposing parent/coaches and players should shake hands after each game. For the purpose of fostering the good of soccer for all Arlington Soccer Association players, any player who regularly attends their team s practice sessions shall play in every scheduled game attended by such player. PROFANITY Under no circumstances will any coach use profanity or physically or psychologically abuse any other person. SCORE REPORTING Coaches will report game scores using the established procedures for the ASA recreational league. This process will be communicated prior to each season. AREA CLEAN UP All teams shall be responsible for maintaining field areas in a clean and neat appearance, disposing of all trash prior to leaving the field.
